The governor of the Ulyanovsk region, Alexey Russian, criticized officials who went on vacation abroad while a special operation is underway on the territory of a neighboring state.

"Not only do they go there in a straight line, they also put them on social networks. I think this is extremely unacceptable," the governor said at a meeting of the headquarters for the integrated development of the region. His words are quoted by RIA Novosti.

He recommended that all officials refrain from traveling abroad. "Of course, we cannot forbid you to do this, but I strongly recommend it again," he added.

The governor's indignation was caused by the trips of the Deputy Minister of Physical Culture and Sports of the region Maxim Sobolev, who went on vacation to Sri Lanka, as well as the deputy director of the OGKU "Government for Citizens" Svetlana Openysheva, who visited Thailand. On her page in the social network, Svetlana Openysheva published a number of photos from Thailand.

The governor of the region instructed the Minister of Sports of the region and the director of the OGKU "Government for Citizens" to deal with subordinates. "And so that this does not happen again," the governor summed up.
